Then MS Outlook is more retarded than I thought. Pine, for example, can
easily reply to attached messages...

You didn't read the instructions carefully enough. It said to *subscribe*
to cygwin-allow, not send messages to that address. You don't subscribe
to ezmlm lists by sending messages to those lists. See
<http://cygwin.com/ml/lists.html#faqs> for instructions and a handy form.

No, postings aren't properly linked because people don't bother to make
them properly linked (retarded mailers, etc).
